The President, Vice Presidents, Trustees and members were deeply shocked and saddened to receive the news of Celia Saywell’s passing.

She was and always will be our PRO! Her commitment and never ending support to the Association will not be forgotten nor will her friendship, knowledge and humour.

Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends at this very difficult time.

Rest in Peace Celia, we thank you for all that you did and are sorry for those that will never meet you 💔⚓️.
